Posted on August 7, 2017

The NBA Math Hoops training in Philadelphia allows educators to access the Sixers’ signature STEM program at no cost. During the two hour session, participants will learn how to play the Math Hoops board game, implement the program’s curriculum, and gain access to special incentives and events during the school year. All are sponsored by the Sixers, creating a unique connection between you, your students, and the team!
